Fans of the Netflix Series 'Narcos' will be familiar with the former owner of this Tulum mansion; this vacation house used to be occupied by Colombian drug lord, Pablo Escobar.

Located in Tulum, Mexico, the house has now been turned into a five-star Mexican beach resort. With 24 rooms, the design of the Tulum mansion works to intersect art and local beach life. Prominent New York-based art dealer Lio Malca in is charge of this operation and he has filled the resort with items from his own personal collection so art lovers can stop by and appreciate his fine collection of sculptures and paintings by such artists as Basquiat and KAWS.

Much of the interest around this resort will revolve around the notoriety of the former owner. This works in Malca's favor, as guests are drawn to the action and danger surrounding the infamy of Pablo Escobar.
